HIGHLY CUSTOMISED SOLUTIONS
Highly customised solutions that have no ‘platform’ that can be leveraged to do some of the development setup require a complete customised solution. Online portals with very specific functionality related to data-flow, data capture and how information is filtered, displayed used and interacted with by the online user.
This is an extreme example of a portal because the eBay site is twenty years in the making, has a global user-ship into the millions and cost multiple millions of dollars to build and maintain.
Educational departments, schools and universities are prime examples of where a custom portal is the best solution since it can manage course data, timetables, reporting and submissions through a secure system that behaves differently for every user. Users can be students, teachers or administrators.
These sorts of solutions are typically complex integrated systems with different types of data attached to different user levels. Maintaining this data is critical to keeping the system functioning correctly. A custom solution is the only way to effectively do this. Opting for a “platform” to develop on, or selecting the wrong sort of framework to build from can lead to problems during the development process because certain functionalities may not be able to be integrated into the system without breaking another part of it.
Projects such as these are long-term and take months to build. Companies, organisations and institutions requiring a solution like this should begin such a project with their end vision in mind.
Highly complicated portal-developments are not terribly different from a software-solution. Both are data-driven and behave differently to different users based on the data they require to see / use and their level of access. It goes without saying that a custom solution requires a very high level of security to protect the data and details of users.
